Hello,

I'm going to build my first gaming PC very soon, so I decided t compile a list. I am on a budget, but I would also want this computer to run new generation games smoothly :)  I plan to overclock moderately, and upgrade as time goes by.

This is the list so far http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2u5ZP

Could all of you take a look at my list? I need to know if there is any way to reduce the cost, or boost performance for the money I'm going to spend.

Thank you!
Guato

Made a few changes, such as adding in a 4*2 gb kit ram for dual channel, added in the non le version of the motherboard since it has a heatsink on the vrm's and a cheaper but better monitor (faster response time) while still keeping the size the same, also added in windows 8.1 which was actually cheaper than the windows 8 you had

There you go........

Edit:

You could also add in a bigger power supply for some headroom in the future, though your current one would work perfectly fine with your setup, just a thought

Edit 2:

Just checked your post and I see you do plan on overclocking, you should really add a cooler, this ones really good, http://

You're awesome! I don't plan to overclock any time soon, so I'll pass on the cooler for now.

One more thing, will my motherboard fit in this case? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Sorry I made a mistake with your ram, somehow I put a quad channel kit instead of dual, don't want to use all your slots now

Use this updated list:

And yes, your components will fit in that case. Any atx mid tower case is just fine

Is there a RAM requirement that I have to mee, such as double kit vs a single kit?

If you run your ram of one slot on your motherboard, it basically means that all the bandwidth goes towards that slot (eg. Single channel 1*8gb). Now if you have dual channel that means in your case 2*4gb kit the memory is shared amongst two slots meaning the bandwidth is also shared. Think of it this way, on a highway it would be better to have two lanes than one so that traffic flows more easily. Its kind off the same idea
